During the keynote at VivaTech 2024, HONOR presented its four-layer AI architecture and demonstrated how its priority is to proceed towardsAI integration in MagicOS. This architecture therefore includes distinct levels.

  • At the lowest level, theCross-device and cross-OS AI forms the basis of an open ecosystem, which allows the sharing of computing power and services between devices and operating systems.
  • The second level (Platform-level AI) allows you to have a personalized operating system, which allows intent-based human-machine interaction and personalized resource allocation.
  • At the third level, theApp-level AI is poised to introduce a wave of innovative and generative AI applications that will revolutionize user experiences.
  • Finally, at the top, the Interface to Cloud-AI services level provides users with easy access to massive cloud services while prioritizing privacy protection, creating a truly holistic and future-oriented AI experience.

As part of MagicOS 8.0, Magic Portal is the industry's first intent-based UI, which understands user behavior and simplifies complex tasks in a single step. Magic Portal currently supports 100 flagship applications across seven scenarios, including travel, productivity, messaging, search, entertainment, shopping and social media, with plans to expand usage scenarios to deliver even more seamless and intelligent AI experiences in the future .

Under the four-tier architecture, HONOR will integrate cutting-edge Gen-AI applications, powered by Google Cloud, into upcoming smartphones, promising to bring users a new level of intelligence and innovation with enhanced privacy protection.

After the successful launch of theAI Motion Sensing Capture, a cutting-edge feature that uses artificial intelligence to automatically capture fast-moving actions, HONOR announced that the upcoming HONOR 200 Series will take photography to new heights with an all-new AI-powered portrait experience, there couldn't be a better opportunity to present what will be its next innovations than this one at VivaTech 2024!

The Series HONOR 200 is poised to revolutionize portrait photography by bringing the mastery of Studio Harcourt (legendary French photography studio known for its expertise in capturing classic portraits depicting iconic characters) into every step of the process, leveraging AI technology to recreate legendary lighting effects and shadow of the study.

By using artificial intelligence to learn from a large set of Studio Harcourt portraits, the HONOR 200 Series has managed to break down the entire portrait photography process into nine distinct steps and perfectly replicate Studio Harcourt's entire method, ensuring portraits flawless and studio quality with every shot.

The HONOR 200 series will be launched in Paris on June 12 and will be equipped with MagicOS 8.0, further solidifying HONOR's commitment to democratizing AI technology. To make AI more accessible to a wider audience, HONOR also announced plans to ship MagicOS 8.0 to its HONOR Magic V2 (rollout already started) and HONOR 90 devices, allowing more users to experience the power transformative of AI.

The synergy between man and artificial intelligence: Intelligent devices for a better future

On the occasion of the event, HONOR also hosted an interesting round table with the participation of Dr. Justine Cassell, an esteemed expert in the sector. The discussion delved into the future of multimodal interaction, highlighting how this integration improves the convenience and privacy protection of smart device users.

“On-device AI can enhance the capabilities of individuals,” emphasized George Zhao. “On-device AI offers personalized recommendations, safeguarding user privacy by retaining data on the device. For example, HONOR's Magic Portal design gives users control over service selection and decision making, highlighting HONOR's human-focused AI.”

In terms of multimodal interaction, Dr. Justine Cassell noted: “Human beings live multimodally. The rise of wearable devices, such as rings and pins, along with powerful smartphones, shows that AI is increasingly comfortable integrating verbal language, non-verbal cues such as gestures and facial expressions, and para-verbal elements such as speech intonation. This predicts the adoption of multimodal artificial intelligence on phones. The more modalities we can integrate into an AI system, the more types of people we can help with that AI system. “

“HONOR's design philosophy is human-centered, with humans at the center of all devices,” said George Zhao. “Thanks to artificial intelligence, cross-device integration can combine the unique advantages of different devices in the future. Instead of learning user behaviors in isolation on each device, this approach allows us to recognize user intent at a macro and unified level, offering tailored recommendations and suggestions.”
